Timebanking is a way for local people to help each other and be recognised for the help that they give. Everyone’s time is valued equally regardless of the skills being exchanged and no money exchanges hands.
For every hour a member spends helping another, (e.g. piano lesson, dog walking), they receive one time credit which they can spend on getting some help from another member (e.g. help filling out a form, getting a lift to the airport). One hour = one Time Credit.
Time Banks help people to get stuff done, pick up new skills, meet new people and feel good.
